Share:

Southwest Region, NY  Community Bank branches across the Southwest New York Region are helping spread holiday cheer by lending a hand and giving back to their local neighbors and communities. The bank is once again ringing in the holiday season by sponsoring or independently organizing charity drives for local community members, families and businesses.

Community Bank branches across the four-state footprint are working to make a difference for local community members and organizations, including branches in the Southwest New York Region. From donating food baskets and gifts for children to purchasing a holiday dinner for a family and more, each branch chose its activity based on the current needs of its local community.

“The true spirit of the holiday season comes from giving back and helping those in need,” Community Bank Regional Manager Lisa Allenson said. “It’s an honor to do that right here at home in our local community. Our branches will be bustling and working hard to make a difference, and we encourage our Southwest New York Region community to get involved and help spread holiday cheer.”

Community Bank invites its neighbors and the community to consider supporting or learning more about one of the many causes the bank is involved with this season.
